A universalist break from evolution
To have a quick break from Küng and evolution and the like, I wanted to link to a series of posts on universalism by my dear friend, Simon. His last was particularly thought provoking, but see also here (for a light-hearted one), here (I notice the influence of Keith Ward on this one) and here.
Now, I ought to be clear about this: Simon looks like his face was dragged through gravel as a baby. Repeatedly. But thankfully (for him) looks aren’t everything; it’s what is on the inside that counts. And his inside has some good things to say about this issue. Many of us have been considering this question for a long time now, and though I’m not at the end of my ponderings, I can say I’m no universalist. However, there is a ‘but’ or ‘however’ in my thinking now, and I’m not sure I can even formulate how that is so yet.
